I was wondering if combination of T3 and Levo can cause severe muscle pain. I was taking 125mcg of Levo up until Feb and after consultation with my Endo she gave me prescription for 20mcg daily, she told me to reduce my Levo to 100mcg daily along side t3, I did what was suggested and introduce t3 slowly, well I started on 10mcg with the Levo but after about 2weeks I started to suffer with severe body aches and pains and still am. I can't walk properly it hurts to sit stand walk, even in bed it wakes me up, it's my upper body as well my neck, arms and back, it's been horrendous but I carried on taking t3 and then upped it to 15mcg, still having muscle problem. I have never had this on a Levo so I seem to be linking it to the t3. After a couple of weeks I upped it again to 20mcg (split doses) but that night my body hurt so much in bed and the next day, so I decided to stop taking it and went back on 125mcg Levo. I am day 3 off the t3 and I still have muscle pain, I just wanted to see if it was t3 causing my problem but am not sure how long takes to come out your system.
The pain is so debilitating and I feel so unwell but I also have just found that I have anemia and it's not to do with iron, folate and b12 and under investigation for the cause. I can't believe how my health has changed so much. I have been off work for 4weeks and going back docs tomorrow to be signed off, I defo can not go to work with this body pain, can't even walk up and down the stairs or get up from sitting down.
Just wish this pain would go and give me my life back.
